    The Hotel is really close to the train station and bus stop, so no need to take a taxi even to the airport. Rooms are very clean and well designed, towels are white and clean, huge bed,.. everything was good. You can nicely walk through all the small streets towards the sea (10 minutes maximum).

    i could hear train and people on the street

    It was close to the train station and not too far to walk to the beach. The staff at the desk were quite friendly.

    The room was tiny and the bathroom miniscule, it was not possible to have a shower with out turning the tap off everytime I moved my arm and getting water all of the floor. The rooms were all very close together and close to the old lift which was all extremely noisy, everytime a door closed it banged and it was extremely frustrating.

    Close to train station, free wifi through out hotel.

    Area surrounding was not very clean, few places to eat.

    Not much really :(

    I dont normally read reviews, never mind write them. I was expecting a 3star hotel, when I arrived I thought omg!! What kind of place is this, the decor was shocking lol. Then went to the room and the door didn't even lock!! And to add insult the safe didn't work!! Noise doesn't really bother me but the Hoover screaming outside my door every morning was too much, and the cleaners just knocked once and walked in!! Lol The worst thing, was the old man on reception in the evenings.. I could write long enough about him but in general he was just a grumpy old horrible person :( who could speak english if he wanted to ask something, but if you want something, he cant and claims he cant understand you :/ I don't enjoy writing a bad review but on this occasion I had to. I would rate this hotel 1star max.

    The air conditioner system will not cool the room below 77 degrees. I had it turned on to maximum cooling and the fan on high for the 4 days I stayed there, and was never comfortable. The outside temperature was 80 to 86 degrees, so the system was never able to cool the room.

    The staff is nice and helpful, I enjoy staying there!

    Its a bit noisy coz the noise barriers is not that good, other than that is pretty nice one!

    The hotel is close to the railway station. The only and the biggest plus.

    The major autoroute is very near to the windows. Though the sound is not very present in the room, vibration is.

    Really close from the train station. Clean room. 20 minutes walk from city attraction

    Be careful, not touristic place during the evening. A lot of young group drinking around on the street.no wifi

    very good location near the main train station and generally central

    poor decoration

    The hotel is at a very prime location. Good support staff!

    No internet connectivity, which is quite uncommon these days. The door for the toilet was dislodged. The room was stinking with bad odor, i guess due to an adjoining draining pipe.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The staff was very polite, helpful and friendly. No doubt for the service.

    When I entered the room,the toilet was very smelly. The location to walk to the hotel at night was not very safe.

  • Single

    Very noisy - traffic. Description is inaccurate - they do not offer a shuttle service to Nice Airport. They are near a bus stop, but times are limited and not 24hrs.

  • Couple
    5.8

    The room other than that we will never stop there again.

    The fact that the electricity kept going off so most of our stay there was no ekectric. For a 3 star hotel you would expect tea/coffee facilities and a mini fridge to ksep things cool. But we did not get this. We had to go out 4 breakfast as this was not good either. And if you wanted to use wifi on your phone you had to sit in reception.

  • Couple
    5.8

    Good location, 15 minutes of walking distance to central beach. Very close to railway station. Room tiny as usual in this hotel level in France. Nicely equiped.

    Bed was bad. Polite personnel, however they forgot to tell me that if I do not leave with car once a day parking lot, which is recommended by hotel, I do not get hotel discount. Finally I paid eur40 for approx. 40 hours of parking on public railway station parking lot. Hotel discount was not applied, because I did not left with car during day at all. This was embarassing, because I was asking receptionist about parking price and hotel discount.

  • Couple

    This is really a terrible place: airconditioning didn't work, floor was filthy, toilet wasn't working well, room was very noisy, unplaesant neighbourhood.Simply stay away!!
